Biomechanical Role of Lateral Structures in Controlling Anterolateral Rotatory Laxity: The Anterolateral Ligament

2017 Elsevier – Operative Techniques in Orthopaedics

Recent renewed interest in the anatomy of the anterolateral complex of the knee, combined with concern regarding persistent instability after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, has led to an expansion of the literature on the biomechanics of many structures of the anterolateral complex of […]

The Role of the Peripheral Passive Rotation Stabilizers of the Knee With Intact Collateral and Cruciate Ligaments: A Biomechanical Study

Rotational instability of the knee in the presence of intact cruciate and collateral ligaments is a complex clinical problem to accurately diagnose and treat. Although advances in anatomic and biomechanical understanding of the knee have led to improved treatment of ligament injuries, there is still a subset of patients who present with symptoms of […]

Anatomic Anterolateral Ligament Reconstruction of the Knee Leads to Overconstraint at Any Fixation Angle


2016 AJSM

Background: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears are one of the most common injuries among athletes. However, the ability to fully restore rotational stability with ACL reconstruction (ACLR) remains a challenge, as evidenced by the persistence of rotational instability in up to 25% of patients after surgery. Advocacy for reconstruction of the anterolateral ligament […]

Anatomic Anterolateral Ligament Reconstruction of the Knee Leads to Overconstraint at Any Fixation Angle

An In Vitro Robotic Assessment of the Anterolateral Ligament, Part 2

2016 AJSM

Recent biomechanical studies have demonstrated that an extra-articular lateral knee structure, most recently referred to as the anterolateral ligament (ALL), contributes to overall rotational stability of the knee. However, the effect of anatomic ALL reconstruction (ALLR) in the setting of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction (ACLR) has not been biomechanically investigated or validated.
